Topics addressed in the event include all major areas of cold regions hydrological research, including but not limited to studies on snow and ice, glaciers, permafrost, seasonally frozen ground, surface water and groundwater.
The goal of the 22nd NRB is to provide a forum for researchers and Indigenous community members to come together as “partners in learning” to exchange experiences and ideas, co-develop new knowledge and understanding, and to promote new collaborations between scientists and Indigenous knowledge holders. As such, contributions that shed light on the growing challenges facing Indigenous populations in the cold regions of the world as a result of climate warming impacts on hydrology and water resources are especially welcome.
The workshop will include oral presentations, panel and open discussions, and off-site activities all focussed on major themes and challenges in cold regions hydrology and water resources. All activities are intended to generate and share scientific and Indigenous knowledge from throughout the circumpolar region so that a greater understanding of climate warming impacts on northern water resources and the human communities that depend on them can be attained.
